Remember, up until recently, big auto wasnt capable on doing major" in drive " tuning. Not saying the technology wasn't there, just it wasn't in the cheap cars and the expensive cars the owner usually didn't care.

In 'Mericuh, driveability is a holy grail but not well defined.

I remember looking at 28 a liter for ethanol and couldn't do the math fast enough to see if it ws a cheaper fuel before going past the off ramp on the freeway. Next off ramp was generally 20 miles down the road.
